The warning triggers in some cases where it shouldn't, relating to

  $ git submodule add gito...@git.csa.inf.ethz.ch:domjudge.git domjudge
  Adding existing repo at 'domjudge' to the index                               
  warning: In Git 2.0, 'git add <pathspec>...' will also update the             
  index for paths removed from the working tree that match                      
  the given pathspec. If you want to 'add' only changed                         
  or newly created paths, say 'git add --no-all <pathspec>...' instead.

It also seems to hint that the problem is with giving a 'pathspec', but
in fact in the case of a "proper" pathspec (that isn't an existing path)
it does *not* trigger, even though it probably should:

  $ git ls-files
  $ rm foo
  $ git add 'f*'
  $ git status
  # On branch master
  # Changes not staged for commit:
  #   (use "git add/rm <file>..." to update what will be committed)
  #   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
  #       deleted:    foo
  no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")
  $ git add -A 'f*'
  $ git status
  # On branch master
  # Changes to be committed:
  #   (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)
  #       deleted:    foo
  # Untracked files not listed (use -u option to show untracked files)

That's of course assuming that you want to unconditionally make -A the
